News hardware Since the release of the iPhone 14 Pro, everyone wants to copy Apple but…
It has now been a week since the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max were released. The public was thus able to discover the incredible novelty of the apple: the Dynamic Island. A real revolution from a software point of view, the competition did not take long to want to copy the apple.
During the Apple Keynote on September 7, 2022, the apple surprised everyone by releasing an incredible software innovation. While all the rumors suggested that the notch would almost completely disappear, Apple finally made the choice to transform one of these weaknesses into a real strength.. This innovation is called Dynamic Island and is already the envy of the competition.
Manufacturers of smartphones running Android as well as app developers are already working on methods to imitate Apple’s Dynamic Island. The democratization of AMOLED as well as the holes dedicated to the front cameras make it easy to copy the magic pill. It has already been two weeks since the Apple Keynote took place and yet the imitations are already arriving at Android.
Developers are hard at work bringing the Dynamic Island to Android
It was therefore only a few days after the arrival of the iPhone 14 Pro that the first counterfeits of the Dynamic Island saw the light of day.. The first were, moreover, a group of independent developers who managed to create themes similar to Apple’s feature on Xiaomi smartphones. For obvious reasons, these are still betas still in development, but they were genuinely the first entrants to want to copy this feature.
In the next few weeks, we expect the Xiaomi Theme Store – as well as those of other manufacturers with third-party adapted theme engines – to start adopting this feature in numbers. In addition to these themes, the first applications are already appearing on the Play Store in early access – like dynamicSpot.
Just type “Dynamic” in the search bar of the Android app store, to realize that there is already a long list of results. It is therefore clear that this feature of Apple arouses a lot of interest. As we explained above, dynamicSpot was the first to hit the Play Store (early access), but it certainly won’t be the last.
But it’s not all about software since the next Xiaomi Civi will also adopt a pill similar to that of the iPhone 14 Pro. It is therefore a safe bet that the software of the Chinese brand will follow the ideology of Apple. One thing is certain, this is just the beginning!
The dark side of the Dynamic Island on Android
As is often the case when setting up new software, this comes with a few downsides, particularly from the point of view of accessibility authorization.since this is indeed Android’s biggest security issue. It is in particular a nice gateway to Android systems for pirates and hackers. Rest assured all the same, on paper there shouldn’t be too many problems if you download this type of applications from the Play Store, always keeping in mind that if they are on the store, it’s is that these are safe (logically).
